India Yamaha Motor seems to have achieved decent sales success with the new FZ 25 motorcycle.
Since its launch in January 2017 the Japanese two wheel maker has managed to sell 11,477 units of the motorcycle in the country as per data released by SIAM.
Sales have been dwindling month on month and the company posted positive sale in the first two months only.
In March 2017, 3,584 units sold while in April 2017 the company managed to increase numbers marginally to 3,595 units.
Sales is May 2017 fell to 2,299 units while June posted very low numbers with only 1,999 units sold. One of the reason sales drop could be the anticipation of Goods and Services Tax (GST) and customers must have waited for new prices as it was assumed the prices would drop considerably.
The Yamaha FZ 25 is powered by a 249 cc single cylinder, air-cooled engine mated to a 5-speed gear box.
The engine features Yamaha Blue Core technology develops max power of 20.9hp at 8,000rpm and max torque of 20Nm at 6,000rpm. With company claimed fuel efficiency is 43 kmpl which is decent for bike of this cubic capacity. The model is compliant to BS IV emission standards.
FZ25 features an all-digital LCD instrument cluster, LED headlight (First in the 250cc segment)and tail-light. The bike does not feature ABS and the company also does not offer it as optional. However the bike gets disc brakes at both ends – 282mm front disc and 220mm rear disc brake.
Colour options for the Yamaha FZ 25 includes Warrior White, Ballistic Blue and Knight Black. The bike now cost Rs. 119,335 (ex-showroom, Delhi) post-GST.
